I took the door seal off and there's no screws that I can see holding the inner door shell to the outer frame. I tried prying the inner shell from the outer frame, but it doesn't give. The diagram you sent doesn't help. I got a piece of trim below the handle off but I can't see how to remove handle. Maybe somebody will come along who knows how to proceed.

Larry, you're gonna need to take the door tight off the hinges. There's hinges at the top and bottom. If the hose is ruined, you'll be replacing it so don't worry about "breaking it more." Item 80 in teh diagram that Pegi so thoughtfully supplied you is a John Guest coupler. Just push in the tube, hold the ring with your thumbnail, then pull out the tube.

Once the door is off, you'll be able to work on it easier.

I fear our "Grasshopper" is going to have a little more problems then that Samurai. This appears to be one of GE foamed-in-place doors. The water line doesn't show as a separate part, (the part after the john guest coupler is just the spring waterline protector).

If the waterline is broken off right at the hinge there may not be enough left to repair unless Samurai knows of a way to fish a new water line through the foam door insulation.

You may be looking at replacing the complete door if you want water from your dispenser again, (cost around $330 for a complete new door, with all dispenser components included I believe).

Thank you. I think it is all glued together. Do you think if I can remove the door outside inset for the water/ice dispenser that I might be able to pull the hose out and drag a new hose in? Or would it be encased too tight in the foam?

If this is the foamed-in-place door then I don't think you will have much luck. I've never had the occassion to be faced with the operation that you are looking at preforming so can't help you much.

You will have to wait for some of the other gurus that have worked on these "WONDERFUL GE PRODUCTS -- Bringing good things to like---like ya right....."
